The 81 will be getting a new soul...

Hey guys,
The '81 fox i picked up a few months back is finally about to get some goodies on her. Right now, I'm debating where to get an engine from. I'm aiming for a Carburated Engine... not efi so I don't have to fool with a computer system, and other little things. I'm aiming for 350-450 hp, nothing to much more but nothing less.

I've found a few places, from a local engine shop, to dss racing, and pro-formance motors.

here's the one I really have in mind as a drop in turn key deal


Ford engines, ford performance engines, 302, 347, crate engines

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as well as any guides I maybe able to follow, for complete restoration. I'm going to finish my outside first, and see how bad the state it is in right now.

But you did get rid of your mustang for a scion...so...we had to do a pre-emptive intervention to nip any thoughts you inferred with your price comment....

Re: The 81 will be getting a new soul...

Well, here is my opinion, and that is all it is, but why not buy a block and build it from there up? Imagine the knowledge you would get from the experience? How awesome would it be when people are oogling over the engine, and you can tell them, with honest, truthful pride, that you built that with your own two hands. I happen to know someone trying to unload a 5.0 block.

Re: The 81 will be getting a new soul...

yea on an honesty note, thats my intention was to buy a short block, and literally building it here at home. I would love to do that, it'd be fun, and if something goes wrong, I know exactly what is in it, what has happened, and how to get to it without fooling around with shop charges. What do you mean by trying to unload a 5.0 block? Sell it? Or is currently trying to get one built?

347 Liberator short blocks

do not waste your money on a DSS block like I did... this guy is the real deal BTW.. and he puts real parts in these motors, not cheap as "cat" parts (no not scat, cat)

and don't buy a 331... just another mistake I've made... there is no reason to not do 347 unless your throwing godly amounts of boost at it.

Re: The 81 will be getting a new soul...

Guys Mark is right. I think LS motors are pretty awesome and they deserve a much better chassis than the pos ones that GM makes.

You should not worry about the Mustang and start fixing up the Scion. I think those cars are pretty cool.

nope I have now though, 408's and such aren't listed on the site but they do them, BTW a well built 347 will beat the death out of any 351 anyday. so if you go 9.5" deck do a 408 minimum

08-418-427 Liberator Short Block News Date added: 08/07/2007
Hey guys, sorry we have not put the 351 windsor based shortblocks online yet, the only reason is we have taken 13 initial 331 and 347 shortblock orders, thus leaving us little time to get the 408 shorts online, BUT you can still order a windsor stroker by just calling us, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. We also have 351 Roller blocks available for your stroker shortblock, only 100 dollar upgrade, we currently have access to more 351 roller block cores than you can imagine, so get em while there hot.

Woody



turnkey engines are pieces-O-****, assembly of the heads and cam isn't something you couldn't learn, if you go turnkey route insist on having a billet core camshaft.

Someone was telling me today that theres this guy that lives in the area, and he had a turbocharged Scion and went to race somebody and turned his boost controller up to 20psi and blow a piston through the block.

What a moron! Thats funny as ****!

Ok well maybe it wasn't all that funny, but its kind of fun. Its LOL funny and not LMAO funny.

I'm telling you. There isn't a better (reasonably priced) NA setup than the LS2/4L60E combination.

As someone who's run both, EFI is eleventy-billion times better than a carburetor. I won't ever, and I mean ever, run another carbureted setup again. Ever.

Re: The 81 will be getting a new soul...

Carburetors, when setup perform great, most guys trash carburetors simply cause they have no idea what they are doing. If your constantly making dramatic elevation changes, efi really shines. EFI is great in its own respects, I just cant stand the wiring mess, and nothing looks better than a holley
